Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

Water chlorination is a very efficient process: it kills bacteria very quickly (but
viruses more slowly, and protozoa such as Giardia and Cryptosporidium hardly at
all). Faecal bacterial numbers, in particular, are reduced to zero, and thus early ...
are parasitic protozoa which parasitize plants, animals and algae. The free-living
protozoa are aquatic species and are ubiquitous and widely distributed world-
wide. A much simpler scheme, proposed by Jahn (1979) and described in Ross ...
The protozoa extend a pseudopodium, which then attaches to the surface. This
pseudopodium retracts strongly and pulls the testate form forward. It appears that
when two pseudopodia are extended by the same cell, but at 1808 to each other,
Particles which make contact with a lip-like structure on the protozoa are
phagocytized (Fig. 4.2). As each particle is captured separately (compared to
filter feeders which retain all particles of the correct size), this allows the protozoa
In the ciliated protozoa binary fission is usually transverse with the posterior end
of the upper organism forming next to the anterior end of the lower one. Binary
fission generally produces daughter cells with genetic material (DNA) identical to
